Default Possible Tesla sponsorship for Speedway

Just saw this on electrek before going to sleep. I hope there is some validity to this.

Also I'd love a Tesla go cart at home

I'm still waiting for an affordable (whatever that means) Tesla roadster to replace my Saturn. Come on Elon, have a heart

Cheers.

Long overdue. They should have been converted to electric a decade ago. Hope they have ludicrous mode!

Okay love this idea but Disney needs to step up the competition for “ selling “ itself .

If the Tesla product fails I suggest they approach JEEP and build the JEEP CAMP EXPERIENCE on property. In recent years this traveling CAMP JEEP appeared in certain cities to give free product samples and a chance to drive in new model JEEPS on different samples of terrain.It was a lot of fun and something different to look forward too. Plus I love JEEP....

I guess there is a TESLA Family Roadtrip visits Disney family “ spreading “ the word online.
TimTracker family needs a Tesla apparently !

This is such an amazingly good idea, and makes so much sense that it almost certainly won’t happen.

Oh man. That'd be either a very short (distance) or very long (time) road trip. It'd be great for Test Track, though. I guess Speedway too.

I've heard this rumor somewhere else a while ago. The joke then was about how many years of delays would it be before we saw the cars (both Disney & Tesla are bad at things like that sometimes LOL). I like the speedway but wouldn't mind if the cars were better.
